BILL STATUS: April 11, 2009- Pursuant to Joint Standing Rule No. 14.3.1, no further action allowed
The Sales and Use Tax Act of 1955 was approved by the voters by a referendum and therefore may not be amended, annulled, repealed, set aside, suspended or in any way made inoperative except by the direct vote of the people. Senate Bill 232 would require the submission of a question to the voters at the 2010 General Election of whether the Sales and Use Tax Act of 1955 should be amended to provide an exemption for durable medical equipment and mobility enhancing equipment prescribed by a licensed provider of health care.
